Capdenac-Gare

In the planning stages of a quick trip along the Le Puy, starting in Figeac. If I take the train in from Toulouse, most likely (depending on departure) I'll have to hop off at Capdenac-Gare to change trains or find alternate means to Figeac. The village of Capdenac (on the other side of the river) looks very pretty and worth a stop, and it's about 5k into Figeac. Have you taken this walk? Or would it be better to take a taxi? Or just change trains and get on with my life? :)

I've walked the Le Puy route, but I don't remember going via Capdenac. As it's not far, why not walk it anyway? It looks as if once you cross the river there is a GR (6A) after a stretch of road. The road is the D840, then you can branch off it and take a marked route which joins the GR65 just south of Figeac.

The walk didn't scare me, the traffic on a narrow, hilly road did. This is good information, thanks!

… I should think most of the traffic follows the D840 through the tunnel rather than turning left onto the narrow road, signed 'Vic', which winds up to Capdenac haut. :)

Looking at google images, after crossing the bridge there is ample space to walk by the road as far as the tunnel. Before the tunnel turn left where there is a sign, 'Vic'....follow Le Lot River etc etc....

Cheers
